Thursday, 17 September, 2020

VANCOUVER — Staff working for the City of Vancouver spent more than $300,000 on office furniture between January and May, a period that coincided with the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and dire warnings from Mayor Kennedy Stewart about the city’s finances.

The $316,800 worth of furniture was purchased as part of a $2.6 million renovation of parts of the second floor of city hall, spending that was approved in December in the city’s capital budget.
